Health Tip: Packing Baby's Diaper Bag

Here's what to include
(HealthDay News) -- Before you head out with baby in tow, make sure you've safely and properly packed a diaper bag.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions:
Bring along unopened jars of commercial baby food. Use ready-to-feed or powdered formula, or other foods that don't require refrigeration. Pack an insulated container with ice packs for perishables such as breast milk. When you're done traveling, store in the refrigerator. Keep spoons and forks in a separate bag to keep them clean. Use hand-sanitizing wipes or a bottle of sanitizer before feeding baby or after changing a diaper. Keep soiled diapers away from food and bottles.
